If you’re a photographer, chances are you’re familiar with Adobe Photoshop. Photoshop is a powerful image editing program that gives users a lot of control over their images. One of the things that makes Photoshop so powerful is its ability to open and edit Camera Raw files.

Camera Raw is a file format that contains raw image data from a digital camera. It’s not as common as the JPEG or TIFF file formats, but it’s still used by some photographers.

If you’re trying to open a Camera Raw file in Photoshop, you may be having some trouble. That’s because, by default, Photoshop CC doesn’t support Camera Raw files.

Luckily, there’s a way to enable this feature. Here’s how:

PRO TIP: Warning: Opening Camera Raw in Photoshop CC may result in unexpected behavior. Please be sure to save your work before proceeding.
  1. Open Photoshop CC and go to the Edit menu.
  2. Click on Preferences, then click on Camera Raw. A new window will open.
  3. In the new window, check the box next to “Enable Support for Camera Raw Files”.

    This will enable Camera Raw support in Photoshop CC.

  4. Click “OK”. You should now be able to open Camera Raw files in Photoshop CC.


Now that you know how to open Camera Raw files in Photoshop CC, you can start using this powerful image editing software to its full potential.
